Wasn't there one of Vettels title seasons where the Red Bull was a bit off at the start. So much so that people thought the Red Bull bubble had burst? Only for by the end of the season it being the car to beat so much so that it still brought a WDC + WCC.
2012. A year where EBD was banned and they could not get their new exhaust design right. They copied sauber design and improvised it. A year that McLaren started and ended with the fastest car, only to have screwed themselves with wrong development path mid-season, bad pit stops, strategies and bad reliability.
Thanks. I couldn't remember the details.
I just remembered that Red Bull the then current WDC + WCC couldn't get the car to work. The point is that it proves that they CAN and have fixed their car mid season. Even though McLaren screwed themselves if Red Bull hadn't fixed it they wouldn't have been in a position to capitalise.

Any Pics, I thought McLaren and Sauber systems were similar in the first race, while Ferrari had a Acer duct

Sauber ramp was tested later in the season

RB used two solutions going into 2012 - Seb used launch spec sometimes, Webber used Coanda exhaust solution...
